Multi-platform homage to the legendary performer will take place at the end of August.
Many musicians are commended for their talents, productivity and legacy, but few are able to match the mighty Sun Ra.
Also known as the ‘Cosmic Pharaoh‘, Sun Ra released over 200 albums and soundtracks in under 40 years.
His artistry and influence spanned the length and breadth of jazz, funk, soul, electro and anything with an intergalactic tinge to it.
A Culture Less Ordinary bring Space Is The Place to the Kazimier on Saturday August 31.
It promises a unique slant on the life and music of a man who may have appeared human, but played like an alien overlord.
Many artists and collectives will be traversing dimensions to proffer you their universal wares including United Vibrations, We, The Undersigned, Spaceheads and Harlequin Dynamite Marching Band.
A smorgasbord of background solar fuzz will be provided by the Liverpool Psych Fest Psound Psystem, Cosmic Girl and TVLux.
If that’s not enough, then there will also be a full screening of the cult Sun Ra documentary Space Is The Place.
So grab your most glittery floor-length robes, get a suitably odd hat and save yourself a seat at the front of the mothership. We’re gonna go for a ride.
